Hello

Welcome and Thank you for your query posted.

My name is***** and being a Medicine specialist I would be able to provide you with an appropriate solution to your concern.

Please note that my Goal is to provide you with an Excellent Service .

Before I answer your question I would like to get some more information:

The only way to prevent dengue is to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes. Heavy use of insect repellants during your trip which can vary from locally available jungle repellants to Permethrin 5 % can help prevention of mosquito bites . Use of Mosquito nets during bed time can help in heavily infested areas.

In Australia, there is currently no vaccine or preventative medicine for dengue. Avoiding mosquito bites is the best prevention.

There is currently no dengue vaccine approved for use in the United States. A vaccine was approved for use in Mexico, but has yet to come to market. Various other dengue vaccines are currently under development.

Please note that the answer provided is for information purpose only and does not substitute a Doctor - Patient Consultation in Clinic

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
